Quite a bit of people in here are looking forward to Wargroove, to the point where I'm curious on trying out Advance Wars. I may give it a shot if Advance Wars goes well.

Yes play Advance Wars it is a beautiful spot of goodness in this world. I recently ordered a CIB copy of Advance Wars 1 on eBay and I am very excited to finally replay the first one (as well as completing that particular collection).

Also it's a little silly but the other game I'm most looking forward to is Tropical Freeze on Switch. Mind you this is a game I own on Wii U, have played through countless times, and have fully completed in every conceivable way.

But now it's on Switch and that's important

I would honestly recommend playing Advance wars 2 over the first one when starting. The first game has it's charm but... it's a bit rough around the edges, especially how it handles fog of war AI. (Something that the series didn't even nail until DoR).

AW1 and AW2 fog of war AI is almost byte for byte identical - the AI FoW mechanics didn't change until AWDS.

I personally think AW1 is the best start simply because of the very comprehensive tutorial mode that actually teaches you the basics of tactical play, which is something that is sorely lacking in the other three titles. AW1 certainly is a bit rougher in some ways but it's the ideal entry point for newcomers.

Is it? I certainly didn't feel it was as big as a problem in AW2 though? hrmmm, maybe that comes down to the map design. It's mainly the green earth maps that suck with fog of war in AW. :V

The tutorial in AW1 is pretty fully featured, but it's also very slow and drags on, I could see people getting bored with the game. Later games baked teaching the games mechanics into the campaign, to various degrees of success. Both the DS games did a pretty good job with it if you ask me but idk, it's easier to emulate the GBA games.

Far Cry 5 drops very soon, and I'm looking forward to that! The remaster for Assassin's Creed Rogue is out Tuesday, which worked out really well, since it's one of the few AC games I still don't have. Then, come May, Hyrule Warriors hits Switch with ALL of the Wii U and 3DS content, which I am SO excited for! Then finally, probably Luigi's Mansion 3DS. So, 3 remakes/remasters/rereleases, and Far Cry 5.

Oh yeah, the new Yoshi game made in Unreal Engine should hit the Switch this year, too!

I don't really look into what new stuff comes out much, and this is probably not going to be out in 2018 but I'm somewhat interested in Spire. Not excited, but interested.

It has been in development since January 2013 and updates have been sporadic (last one a year ago) but the art style is great and it's made by the people who made Dustforce which is amazing.

Now that I'm on that, how is UFO Extraterrestrials 2 doing? I'm guessing that's dead these days.
